Supporting the Experience
In a recent column, I talked about what partnerships mean to this University. This issue, with the annual report and the donor honor roll, illustrates the outcomes of many of these partnerships. The list that begins on page 41 acknowledges the individuals, corporations and foundations that donated to The University of Tampa during the 2009-2010 fiscal year. Once again, the outpouring of support for our University was outstanding. I thank each and every one of you for supporting not only UT, but higher education and the future of our country. Through your gifts — no matter how big or small — you play a vital role in the life of the University. As a reader of the UT Journal, you know how the student experience at UT is vital, exciting and life-changing. Along with new buildings, every year we introduce new programs, new faculty members, new education abroad opportunities, as well as a new class of students who are eager to take advantage of a UT education.

“Through your gifts — no matter how big or small — you play a vital role in the life of the University.” —dr. ronald l. vaughn In my annual report, I highlight a few aspects of the UT education that we have focused on in the past year. This annual report always gives me a good reason to look at the past while also looking toward the future. As always, I welcome your feedback and ideas about the path of the University. One aspect you’ll read about in my message is our commitment to experiential education, which provides students with unparalleled opportunities that prepare them for future careers and life experiences. The opportunities UT students have — to do marine biology field research, tutoring grade school students in the Spartan Mentor program or studying in China — make the UT experience unique, and it would not be possible without your support. Recently I met the president and staff of Syniverse Technologies, a local firm that provides technology and business solutions around the globe. Syniverse regularly employs UT interns and gives them a rich, unique experience. This kind of support of UT’s experiential education is simply invaluable. I hope that each of you has an opportunity to visit the campus soon to see the projects made possible through your generous contributions, and to meet the faculty and students whose work and study your gifts have helped sustain. A final note: You’ve undoubtedly already noticed that the UT Journal has received a facelift. Our publications staff worked hard to revamp the magazine to a level that reflects the prestige, reputation and sophistication that UT has achieved. The UT Journal is our main communication vehicle to all our audiences, and it is our hope it will help you reconnect, or strengthen your connection, with UT.

HappEnings on campus and in tHE community
Freshmen abroad will be able to partake of many London attractions, including the London Eye.
London Calling Top incoming freshmen start their college careers overseas For 32 freshmen entering UT this fall, packing for their first year of college included a passport and a map of the London Underground. An opportunity usually reserved for upperclassmen, study abroad is now available for select first-semester students at UT. The 32 students started their college careers at Roehampton University in London this fall as part of the new UT Freshmen Abroad program.
The students in the program participated in a pre-departure orientation at UT. Now at Roehampton they are carrying a full load of classes, participating in extracurricular activities, living in a single room in an American-style dormitory and participating online in one of UT’s freshman transition programs, Gateways or Pathways to Honors for students enrolled in the Honors Program. Once in London participants received a London Under-
ground pass and an international cell phone, and are eligible for excursions around Britain. Plus, the students will pay approximately the same UT tuition and fees as if they were studying in Tampa. After the fall semester abroad, the students will resume their studies at UT. Kevin Beach, associate dean of the baccalaureate experience, said the program will offer students a unique college experience that will benefit their future classroom experiences at UT. “The program attracts students who are independent, adventurous and who want to do something different than what everyone else is doing,” Beach said. He added that completing study abroad freshman year clears many of the obstacles students struggle with as upperclassmen. Freshmen year abroad programs are distinctive, with only a few universities offering them and less than 4 percent of U.S. college students participating. UT joins such institutions as Arcadia University, Syracuse University, Florida State University, University of Mississippi and New York University in offering such a program. At UT, students were screened for admission to the freshmen abroad program. Only the top 20 percent of the entering class was invited to apply and students were only accepted to the study abroad program after phone or in-person interviews.

Child’s Play Faculty members help plan for Tampa’s new children’s museum Unable to resist, several faculty members leaped head-first into the web-like cage of steps that simulate the cycle of water, in this case the path of leaves a raindrop uses to get from cloud to ground. Glazer Children’s Museum President and CEO Al Najjar gave assistant professors Patty O’Grady and Pattie Johnston and Professor Hunter O’Hara a preview tour through the museum, which opened Sept. 25. There are streets and street lights, a kitchen with international play foods and a wind tunnel for testing paper airplanes. There are six reading libraries, a stage for theater productions, a Port of Tampa mockup and an art lab — all for children, from birth to 10. “Everywhere the children go, they’ll be educated without them knowing it,” O’Grady said. “That is key.” O’Grady and O’Hara joined the museum’s education committee at Najjar’s invitation. Najjar said 36 percent of the O’Grady (left) and O’Hara crawl through the “Water’s Journey” exhibit.
museum’s staff is devoted to education. “The most powerful thing you can give a child of any age is relevance,” O’Hara said. “All these exhibits are in their world. It’s very concrete.” Located across the river, the proximity to the University and the opportunities for hands-on learning for its own students make the multimillion dollar children’s museum a rich, creative, educational tool. Taking instruction outside the classroom benefits both children and young adults. It allows for interpretive and improvisational education, encouraging them to be fully engaged in their learning, O’Grady said. This is experiential learning at its fullest definition. O’Grady, O’Hara and Johnston see the opportunities for campus-wide involvement. From nursing students leading health talks to chemistry students demonstrating labs to film students engaging children with video cameras, they see the possibilities as endless.
Howdy Partner This spring UT formed strategic partnerships with ELS Language Centers and the National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE). The first allows the University to host a language center on campus that offers English as a Second Language services to international students. These students fulfill all requirements for admission to UT, but need work on their English skills. ELS will also partner with UT admissions staff to expand recruiting into parts of the world that have previously been hard to reach. The partnership with NSEE will make UT a regional center for experiential education and a model for other universities. This fall UT will host two workshops with the NSEE Experiential Education Academy to promote the development and improvement of experiential education programs. These workshops will highlight UT’s varied and numerous programs that employ experiential education, including internships, international education, service learning and undergraduate research. For more information about UT’s experiential components, see www.ut.edu/experiential.

Shark Tale National Geographic turns to UT professor for story Sharks are at the top of the food chain and, among them, white, tiger and bull sharks are at the very pinnacle. What keeps them at the top is the focus of a National Geographic show that Assistant Professor Dan Huber helped film this summer. Huber headed to Bimini, in the western Bahamas, on May 14 for five days of filming and research. “The focus of the show is the predatory ability of tiger and bull sharks,” said Huber. “They are among the biggest and baddest sharks in the world.” Huber joined Phil Motta from the
University of South Florida and other Bahamian and U.S. scientists filming the feeding behaviors and bite force measurements of these sharks. Now back in Tampa, Huber is working with National Geographic at USF comparing the bite force measured by the sharks in Bimini with the bite force needed to crush sea turtle shells. He said tiger sharks are the only ones known to consume sea turtles with any regularity. “It feels really good to be working with National Geographic,” Huber said. “It’s been a lifelong goal of mine to work with them in some capacity.”

Turning to Professors in Times of Crisis Young victims of sexual assault are often intimidated and don’t know where to turn, so, many times, they look to their professors, according to research by Dr. Kathryn Branch, assistant professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice. Branch is researching the impact of these disclosures on professors, who are usually unprepared to handle such topics. “I’ve read recently that college students are more likely not to turn to the police for help,” Branch said. Last summer Branch surveyed her colleagues in the American Society of Criminology’s Division of Women in Crime. She found that not only were students disclosing sexual assaults, more than half the time, students were coming to their professors in tears. “It’s happening,” Branch said. “The students are coming in crisis, they
dr. Kathryn Branch, assistant professor of criminology and criminal Justice
are disclosing sexual assault to female professors, and the professors aren’t prepared to deal with it. You don’t leave those stories in the office. They are haunting.” Branch is published in the April 2010 issue of the online journal,
Enhancing Learning in the Social Sciences, in a special issue dedicated to teaching sensitive topics. The article shares her findings on the role strain professors deal with after disclosure. This semester, Branch and two colleagues broadened the survey to include 360 faculty members from different fields at three different institutions. Branch, who serves on the Sexual Violence Task Force of Tampa Bay, said that many of the survivors who spoke, male and female, said they told their stories to the first person and then not again until years later because they were blamed for the assault. “How this secondary person responds could shut down the victim’s story,” said Branch. “It’s important to speak out and say we won’t tolerate violence against the women in our lives.”

“My expectation of having a competitive track season became a dream. The reality was I couldn’t even walk.” —jess butler ’12
Determination Defined All-American track star battles back from injury Determination is a necessary trait for distance runners. But UT cross country runner Jess Butler ’12 found she needed it off the trails as much as she needed it on them. The Coral Springs, FL, native enrolled at UT with high hopes after winning a state championship in the 3,200 meter run at the Florida High School Athletic Association Track
Championships during her senior year at St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Butler immediately made a big splash in her first race as a Spartan, placing third at the 2008 Early Bird Classic. Just days after that successful start, Butler went for a training run that would literally stop her in her tracks. She paused about halfway through to stretch and quickly realized something
December meeting with a specialist revealed something far more serious than anyone could have anticipated. Butler had a hip fracture, and two lesions inside the bones of her pelvis and sacral wing had to be removed. “My expectation of having a competitive track season became a dream,” Butler said. “The reality was I couldn’t even walk.” There was no question how Butler would respond. She would fight on, towards her goal of a triumphant career. But would her body allow her to return to the level she exhibited before the injury? All one has to do is look at the results of her sophomore campaign to see that the answer was “yes.” Butler could hardly imagine simply running again, nevermind achieving what she did her second year at UT. “I just never gave up. What helped me most was that I never lost sight of my goals,” she said. “Slowly I got my strength back, and as I felt stronger, it made my confidence grow.” With her confidence increasing, Butler recorded four top-three finishes while garnering all-conference and all-south region accolades. She helped guide her team to a third consecutive Sunshine State Conference championship, and Butler’s time of 21:31.65 was good for second individually. Turning (Continued) UTjournal Fall 2010 7

(Continued from page 7) in another second place finish, she paced Tampa to a third straight NCAA South Regional championship as well. Having earned a berth in the national meet, thanks to her impressive showing at the regional, she wrapped up the season with a 49th-place finish at the NCAA Championships. While some may have considered that performance disappointing, Butler chose to see it as a learning experience and — as if she needed more, considering the ordeal she had overcome just to be able to run again — drew inspiration from it as well. “I learned some valuable lessons from the cross country nationals,” Butler said. “I was more determined than ever to make it to track nationals in the spring.” Fully recovered and full of motivation, Butler shined at the 2010 NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships. She bested all opponents in her preliminary race in the 1,500 meters while writing her name into the UT record books with a school-best 4:30.11 time in the event. Improving on that time by more than a second, a 4:28.98 performance in the finals earned her seventh place and solidified her place as an All-American. “One of the highlights of the season was winning my prelim and setting the school record,” Butler said of her performance at the national event, “but I have to say the most exciting thing was breaking that record and becoming an All-American.” With her injuries behind her and a long-awaited full season of competition on her résumé, Butler will now aim for loftier heights with the 2010 upcoming cross country season. She hopes to continue her personal victories as well as her team’s triumphs. —Taylor Flatt 8 utjournal Fall 2010

Researchers count seahorses in Tampa Bay to assess the health of their habitat
It’s just before 8 o’clock on a Saturday morning when half a dozen marine biology students zip up their wetsuits and load their research gear on a boat in preparation for a day in Tampa Bay. The scene is industrial. The students set out from UT’s Marine Science Center, which shares the Tampa Bayside Marina with boat slips, office suites and a restaurant called Hula Bay Club. On the boat ride out they see dolphins swimming alongside them, and they aim for a narrow strip of land. After a 15-minute ride, the students jump into the water, ready to research. What they’re researching in three underwater sites in Tampa Bay could be vital to seahorses, pipefish and other marine life around the world. And it’s all being done by students studying with Dr. Heather Masonjones, associate professor of biology. Masonjones has been studying dwarf seahorses and pipefish (both part of the Syngnathid family) since 1991. In 2004, she received a grant from the Tampa Bay Estuary Program to determine where seahorses and pipefish live in Tampa Bay. The Florida Aquarium was also a recipient of the grant, and Masonjones has collaborated on its seahorse exhibit. She has investigated the waters in the Florida Keys, near Fort De Soto Park and the Gandy Bridge, and Cockroach Bay, near Ruskin, FL. One day in 2004, she and her team collected 11 seahorses and 143 pipefish at a site near Fort De Soto. Her work in the last five years has focused on three areas in Tampa Bay and is important for long-term sustainability and management of species that are threatened worldwide. Millions of seahorses every year are trapped for sale as pets or are dried and sold as collectibles or for use in traditional medicines, especially in Asia. 10 UTjournal Fall 2010

UTjournalâ€‚ Fall 2010â€‚ 11
But overharvesting isn’t the only thing threatening the seahorses. Locally, their seagrass habitat has dramatically declined over the last 60 years. Seahorses and pipefish are indicators of the health of the ecosystem, so the more seahorses and pipefish there are, the healthier the seagrass habitats are likely to be, and vice versa. Early results show a moderate decrease in three of the more common species of syngnathids since 2007. In a one-year period starting August 2008, Masonjones measured a 4-percent drop in dwarf seahorses, a 6-percent drop in chain pipefish and a 9-percent drop in gulf pipefish. Populations of dusky pipefish increased dramatically, though, as well as those of the fringed pipefish, in the research site she studies. “With this type of short-term data it is difficult to determine the cause of these changes, because they could be natural fluctuations in the ecosystem, reflect changes in the habitat that are better for some species and worse for others, or be caused by human actions,” Masonjones says. In addition, the new study indicates that two species, the gulf pipefish and dusky pipefish, are moving around between sites much more than would be expected, and dwarf seahorses are also moving, although much more slowly, between sites. This means the more mobile species could require larger tracts of habitat than the less mobile species. There are still a lot of unknowns. For instance, it is critical to find out how big a seagrass patch must be before it can support viable populations long term. While Masonjones’ early results seem to show that the size and number 12 UTjournal Fall 2010

of the seahorses are diminishing, the project is ongoing and more research is needed. If she and her students can figure out the breeding patterns and parenting roles of the different species, they might be able to reproduce viable habitats elsewhere and preserve marine life in different parts of the world. The current research allows students to get their hands dirty dragging nets along the bottom of the bay, picking up sample organisms to study in a lab. They pull out about 75 pipefish and 55 seahorses, writing the number of each type on a clipboard and labeling them male or female. They put them in a bucket and bring them back to the lab where they tag them with a latex dye that helps researchers track how far they’ve traveled. The dye is injected under the bony plates and is black light sensitive. They keep the organisms for less than two hours before releasing them back into the water. The seahorses’ unusual gender roles play a significant factor in this research. The males fertilize and carry the offspring in a pouch, and give birth to them, but they don’t have a strong parental role, releasing the
independent offspring to swim away immediately. It’s important for researchers to learn how syngnathids live, and more importantly, how they reproduce in a particular environment. What causes them to leave a certain area and what attributes do they look for when choosing a new place to live? All of this information will help with repopulation efforts that could be necessary in the Gulf of Mexico (see sidebar). As her hands dig through and toss aside seagrass from one of the net drags in site #2, Samantha Macks ’11 talks about how she manages to pursue a major in marine biology while being a star volleyball player at UT. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it, she says, because of opportunities like this one. “I just find it all so fascinating,” Macks says. “Watching the seahorses in the tanks each day, I find new questions and new areas I want to study, so it’s totally worth the effort to go out in the water and learn even more.” The bay provides a unique atmosphere in which to study because of its diversity. Masonjones and her students continue to find new things of interest each time they head out because the landscape can change even within a short distance. In one section, you can move just three meters in a different direction and the environmental components change so much, you can actually feel a tougher, firmer seagrass under your feet. The denser seagrass provides
The males fertilize and carry the offspring in a pouch, but they don’t have a strong parental role. a rich habitat for the species and an ideal spot for additional research. “Oh, I stepped on somebody,” exclaims Lauren Moon ’10 as she walks over the thicker seagrass. She treats the marine life like family because, as she says, “They’re my life.” Moon, who graduated in May with a major in environmental science, is thinking about a career at a national park. “I just love to be out in the field. There’s only so much data gathering you can do without wanting to be in the wild and actually touching the science,” she says. This project does exactly that for the students — both those who are participating now and those who helped in the beginning. Kevin Curtis ’05 — the student who helped start this latest seahorse study with Masonjones — now has his Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Miami and credits his success to working on the seahorse project. “The four years I spent working side by side with Heather gave me the confidence and inspiration to continue on to graduate school and pursue a career in the sciences,” he says. “The experience helped develop my skills as a scientist and allowed me to gain experience in developing, planning, and implementing my own research.” Curtis has shifted gears slightly, researching bone marrow and stem cell therapy, but he says working on real research helped prepare him for this path. Danielle Dixson ’05, another one of the original students on this project, is now studying clownfish around the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. “Being a part of a large research experiment as an undergraduate set me apart from others and has been a big key in me getting where I am today,” she says. Recent graduate Emily Rose ’07 was a co-author on the most recent study and is now working on her Ph.D. at Texas A&M, studying molecular ecology. As an undergraduate researcher
with Masonjones, she learned how to come up with a research question, execute a study with data collection, analyze the data, and finish the process with a publication. “During the project I began as an extra pair of hands in the field and by the end of the experience I was coordinating volunteers and even starting my own research with her [Masonjones’] guidance,” she says. “I have learned a lot from my research experiences and gained more confidence in myself as a scientist, which has helped me immensely as an early graduate student this past year.” Rose is looking at the effects of synthetic estrogens, such as the ones found in birth control pills, on
syngnathids. Male fish can become feminized, with both male and female reproductive organs. She is studying what effect that has on mating, genetics and populations in the wild. Masonjones speaks highly of the interaction the seahorse research has provided for both her and her students. “It’s a unique opportunity for them to learn [about syngnathids] and for me to teach it. Projects like this one prepare each of the students to go out and become practicing biologists,” Masonjones says. “There’s so much practical experience you can’t translate in the classroom. We push the limits for students; they have to think on their feet and solve problems. That’s real-world experience.” UT
The Aftermath of the Spill Dr. Heather Masonjones’ work on seahorses is especially vital in the Gulf of
Mexico following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As environmental groups began to realize the effect the spill could have on marine life, an international organization called Project Seahorse contacted Masonjones to help draft a press release and determine what the best response would be to help preserve syngnathid fishes. While it could be years before the full extent of the damage is known underwater, Project Seahorse knows how critical the plants on the sefloor are to syngnathids and the potential problem millions of gallons of oil could pose. In essence, the more oil lying on top of the water, the less it lets through sunlight, which the seagrass depends on for growth. As the seagrass dies off, the habitat and food available for seahorses and pipefish shrinks. “The oil spill has been devastating to marine life in the Gulf of Mexico,” Masonjones said in May. “We won’t know the full magnitude for a while, but it’s already a disaster.” The spill, which took months to stop, is the largest marine oil spill in the history of the industry. According to estimates by scientists and engineers, the leak totaled about 200 million gallons of oil. It had a devastating impact on marine life, and waters off the coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida were all shut down to fishing at one time. Scientists found evidence in August that the oil could be harming phytoplankton, the bottom of the Gulf’s food chain. The research at UT could help minimize the long-term negative effects of the oil spill because it studies how and when seahorses choose to move from one area to another. If Masonjones and her students can figure that out with any certainty, the information could be used to help repopulate areas affected by the oil spill and around the world where these species are already threatened and even endangered.

Becker knows many of them. Some he’s worked with for more than 30 years. First, as an employee of the Food and Drug Administration, and now as a consultant to the seafood industry, he’s worked with multiple generations of the same families, like the Johnsons, who Becker has worked with since 1971. First he helped the parents adapt to new regulations in seafood safety. Today he’s trying to answer the sons’ questions at a panel on the oil spill. “They asked questions no one had the answers to, like how long this would go on, and what would happen next,” said Becker, who lives in Mobile, AL, and works for the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium and the Auburn University Marine Extension and Research Center. “There’s kind of a hopelessness about the thing.” In Alabama, shrimp season usually starts around June 15. This year, however, state and federal waters were closed, and many shrimpers got work with BP, cleaning up the oil. The city canceled the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo for the first time in 78 years. “I’m scared to death of it,” Becker said of the massive spill in June. “All we need is a half decent storm to come through and that stuff ’s in our marshes. That’s where our fish and shrimp originate from. If it kills the marshes, it kills the potential for future seafood. A lot of people could be out of business pretty quickly around here if it comes the wrong way.” Becker started working for the FDA soon after graduating from UT. A classmate put two applications on his desk a few months before graduation. One was for a job as an FDA inspector; the other was for a job as a microbiologist. He didn’t have the lab time for the latter, so he applied for the FDA job. He met his wife on the first day of work, and together they had two daughters. His oldest, Jennifer Becker ’94, also attended UT. The FDA is a very small agency considering what it does, Becker said. Nearly 25 cents of every dollar spent by consumers go toward products and services regulated by the FDA. The organization is always underfunded and understaffed, he said. Still, the FDA makes the food and drugs sold in the U.S. safe. 14 UTjournal Fall 2010
In 1997, the FDA came up with new regulations for the seafood industry called Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). These regulations provided guidelines on the handling, manufacturing, distribution and consumption of seafood, which Becker taught to hundreds of industry people. “That changed the industry tremendously,” he said. “Before that came about the seafood industry was way behind in technology and keeping up with good sanitation practices.” Becker said he’s happy to share what he’s learned about seafood safety, and when he retired from the FDA in 2001, he couldn’t just walk away from it. So, when he’s not playing percussion for the Mobile Pops, or fishing for speckled trout, he works about eight hours a week for the Sea Grant program. He also fields e-mails and refers people to specific topic experts. In addition to his Sea Grant work, he has acted as a consultant to the food industry, first through a large consulting firm, EAS Consulting Group in Alexandria, VA, and then on his own as Deep South Consulting. He makes national and international audits and assists many large food manufacturers on a part-time basis. He teaches HACCP on a private basis and has taught Seafood HACCP to the Korean FDA in Seoul and to the West African Trade Hub, a group of seafood processors, in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. Through his consulting work he’s helped people like Glen Bryant, president of Bryant Products Inc., in Bayou La Batre, AL, which has been in business since 1987. “It’s simple: all seafood processors must have HACCP programs, and when followed as required, they should have a zero loss of product, which is very important to small seafood plants,” said Bryant in a piece on the Sea Grant website. “However, the program has many uncertainties that come up when trying to implement it. Through Sea Grant’s extension service, we have contacts through Mr. Becker that can step in and help when trying to interpret and implement the various regulations and requirements of the FDA.” UT

Special Feature: entrepreneurs Help launch the New economy
By kyle parks illustration By stephanie dalton cowan
In the University of Tampa’s entrepreneurship program, students learn how to turn big ideas into successful businesses — and the training is paying off. One student is working this summer on a venture to provide electric power for idling tractor-trailers at Connecticut rest stops. Another launched a real estate company that rents to individual tenants, roommatestyle, in Omaha, NE. And a recent graduate is working to get funding to build a major recycling facility in his home country of Haiti. Their ingenuity shows how UT gets students ready for real-world challenges. The University established an entrepreneurship concentration for the MBA in 2002, and the major became available two years later. As of last fall, the entrepreneurship major was one of the most popular majors in the University with 98 undergraduate majors and 20 MBA students with the entrepreneurship concentration. The University also houses the Florida Entrepreneurship Center, founded in 2007. The center holds a business plan competition for students each year and presents the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards. The center also helps entrepreneurs in the community
through its Self-Employment in the Arts Conference and the Naimoli Institute, where students strategize with local companies. Entrepreneurship programs are getting more attention at business schools nationwide. More than 2,000 colleges and universities offer entrepreneurship courses, and about 200 institutions have entrepreneurship centers. The growth of these programs reflects the increasing importance of startups and small businesses to the U.S. economy. As corporate jobs continue to be the casualties of a bad economy, the flexible thinking of an entrepreneur is more valuable than ever. More than 60 percent of new jobs are created by small businesses and startups, which represent the majority of U.S. employers. Startups also spark innovation, a main contributor to economic growth. As its students and alumni garner success, the University’s program is gaining in stature under the leadership of Dr. Rebecca White, who has brought a powerful combination of academic achievement and business experience to the role of program chair. White, who was recently named a 2010 BusinessWoman of the Year by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, knows firsthand about entrepreneurship, as
she and a colleague started a company in 2006 that helps universities do background checks on potential employees. And at Northern Kentucky University, she built a program that was rated among the nation’s top 25 by the Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine. She thinks UT’s program has the ingredients for the same kind of attention and success. “Think about it,” she says. “Our program is part of a fast-growing university with a good reputation and solid financial support. Combine that with our location — Tampa Bay is one of the top areas in the country for startup businesses — and we have what it takes to succeed and get noticed.” The program has a new curriculum, with a focus on both the creative thinking and the nuts-and-bolts skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur. Some classes help students become problem solvers and think innovatively. Others teach basics such as how to deliver an “elevator pitch” or write a business plan. Among other improvements, the program is bringing more guest speakers (including UT alumni) into classes to relate professional experiences. White started the Main Street Series, which brings successful entrepreneurs UTjournal Fall 2010 17
and advisors to campus to speak to students on topics of interest to “Main Street.” White and Dr. Dean Koutroumanis ’89 MBA ’91, assistant professor of management, have been working on getting a group to come together to volunteer and network. A campus-wide program will help students who are already running their own companies become more successful and help those who wish to enter business plan competitions. “Of course, our focus is on providing academic programs for prospective

entrepreneurs, but we aren’t going to do this in a vacuum,” White says. “We are working to involve the rest of the student body where we can, because
What’s the Big Idea? For Edouard Carrie ’10, finding enthusiasm for his new company is easy. All he has to do is go home to his native country of Haiti. “Things have gotten better in Haiti since the earthquake, but it is still very rough,” he says. “If I can help the economy and people there in my own way, that’s a great reason for going into business.” Carrie’s idea: build and run a recycling plant in Haiti, where tons of materials still lie in the fields and streets, a result of the devastating January earthquake that killed an estimated 250,000 plus people. He has been working for months on his business plan with the help of his father who works in the Haitian textile manufacturing industry. They approached investors this summer, and if all goes well, they plan to raise $1.7 million to acquire land, plan the facility and buy equipment to recycle plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and aluminum. “There is a major shortage of facilities for recycling there,” Carrie says, “and we think it is a tremendous opportunity.” For UT entrepreneurship students, ideas for businesses often revolve around their personal interests and contacts they have from family and friends. Doug Heffner ’10 is marketing a hot sauce for wings working with several Tampa Bay restaurants and planning Internet and trade show strategies. Chris Miller MBA ’11 got his idea for a real estate company that rents properties to roommatestyle tenants after he had problems finding a suitable place to live. Jess English ’10 runs a company called Simply Sitters, a babysitting referral service that serves more than 120 families around Tampa. And Arthur Linares ’11 spent the summer working on two initiatives: placing solar panels on large buildings to collect energy and working with a developer to build electrical stations at Connecticut rest stops for truckers.The latter promises to keep truckers from having to burn gas as they rest, usually idling for hours. For all five entrepreneurs, the training from UT has been invaluable. “I have learned so much,” Linares says. “But it isn’t only about how to start a business. It’s about having the confidence to believe a good idea can lead to success.” 18 UTjournal Fall 2010
the skills you learn in our program will help anyone in their job. Who wouldn’t want an employee who takes ownership for their performance and shows creative thinking?” UT has partnered with Emerge Tampa Bay, the young professionals group of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, which offers discounts and half-year memberships to seniors. The University is also expanding its involvement with the national College Entrepreneurs Organization, including an April conference that brought budding entrepreneurs to UT. White is involved with two national organizations — Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC) and United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) — and one international organization, International Council of Small Business. She is on the executive council of GCEC and is vice president of programming for USASBE. “These are the leading entrepreneurship education organizations in the world. I hope to bring the GCEC to Tampa in a couple of years. As she plans her second year at UT, White wants to build the quality of the 120-student program while thinking of ways to increase its visibility to business leaders and academics around the country. Some possibilities include creation of a national-level business plan competition; more tie-ins with companies both locally and nationally, and publicizing the work of the program and its students. Part of this effort involves thinking of ways to create a “wow” factor by building buzz around the program and its events. “I have been so impressed with the quality of the students here,” she says. “Of course, an entrepreneurship program is going to attract kids with a lot of motivation, but I am constantly amazed at how they won’t let obstacles stand in their way. Being around them is a constant inspiration to me.” UT

Cathy (Battaglia) Brasier ’65 still remembers the day she got her bid from Alpha Chi Omega. All the girls who rushed that year stood outside the dean of women’s door, waiting anxiously to see if they were picked by the sorority they wanted. One by one, each girl went in to see the dean, who shuffled through the bid cards ... slowly. When she finally got to the girl’s card, she would look at her and (hopefully) say, “You got what you wanted!”

“Being a part of a fraternity or sorority can be a huge part of your college life when it’s done the right way.” —jaclyn carden, coordinator of student organizations
Then the girls would go to where their new sisters were waiting. Brasier remembers walking up the winding stairs by Fletcher Lounge, and when she got to the top, she saw all the Alpha Chis waiting for her. “It was a great feeling of belonging to a group,” she says. Greek Life has been a part of the UT experience since the University was founded. The first social fraternities and sororities began forming in 1933, and new organizations are still being added today. Some have come and gone, and certain elements have changed over the years. Even now, the organizations are working on a strategic plan to enhance fraternity and sorority life at UT. But one thing remains constant: the bonds that are forged in fraternities and sororities continue long after the members graduate. A Place to Belong
All of the original fraternities and sororities were local organizations: Delta Kappa, Beta Chi, Rho Nu Delta, Sigma Kappa Nu. During the ’50s, as the number of students grew — and with it the reputation of the University — there was a push to affiliate with national organizations. The University was working on accreditation at this
point, so aligning itself with national organizations was seen as a sign of progress. UT also started recruiting students from farther and farther away, and students found themselves homesick and in need of a support network. Those who came from the North had limited communication with their families back home, and traveling was difficult and expensive. There were no computers, no cell phones, credit cards, microwave ovens, and many luxuries that are common for today’s students. “We were basically isolated from the rest of the world,” said Dennis Petretti ’65, who joined Sigma Phi Epsilon. “We learned in many ways how to survive, scrimp and get along by helping each other out. The best interest of Sig Phi Epsilon came before our individual best interest, and that is the key to a true brotherhood.” The true bond of a real brotherhood must endure the test of time, he said, and the bond of the Tampa Sig Eps is evident by the camaraderie demonstrated at their reunions some 40 years later (see page 23). Present Day Greeks
Students today report the same reasons for joining a fraternity or sorority.
Did You Know? n The
fraternities basically disappeared from campus in the 1940s, when most collegeaged men were involved with WWII. The four fraternities were reactivated in 1945. n In 1950, one fraternity brother, Ed Bray ’50, came out of class to find his car, a Crosley “Hotshot,” had been carried up the stairs of Plant Hall and into the library (now Fletcher Lounge) by his brothers. n The Pi Kappa Phi house — at 304 Plant Ave. — was sold to a preservation society in 1977 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s now known as the Hutchinson House, and it houses law offices. n In the ‘70s, most of the sororities became inactive, and some of the fraternities became co-ed. There was a resurgence in sorority life in 1980, and three new sororities were formed: Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Chi Omega and Delta Gamma. n In the library there’s a 1984 fumigation notice for a fraternity house at 806 Fremont Ave., with a roach taped to it. “Take that roach scum,” is written next to it in pen. 20 UTjournal Fall 2010
That sense of belonging to something greater than oneself, of having an instant bond, is what makes being Greek attractive to them. “For me, being a part of a sorority is having an extended family of around 80 women,” said Mary Beth Hillery ’11, president of the Panhellenic Council. “I joined because it was an easy way to connect in a new place, and I have gotten so much more out of my experience.” Hillery, who interned on Capitol Hill last summer, recently received the Leveraging Leaders scholarship from Delta Gamma to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute, a leadership institute that helps Greek leaders learn to live their “ritual” and create positive change within their communities. Daniella Fusari, president of Alpha Chi Omega, said she takes the experiences, resources and values of the group, and applies them to herself as an individual. That’s what being Greek means to her. “As each day passes, you should become stronger and more aware of who you are as a person,” she said. “As a sorority woman, I didn’t just throw on Greek letters and call myself a sister. I took the opportunities that my sorority gave me and made myself stronger and wiser as an individual.” Future
Both Hillery and Fusari are on the Fraternity and Sorority Life Strategic Planning Committee to enhance Greek life on campus. “The overall feeling was that the Greek community was active and doing great things but that they weren’t living up to their potential,” said Jaclyn Carden, coordinator of student organizations. The University hired a consultant in fall 2008 to help determine which areas could be improved. He visited campus, reviewed thousands of documents

and interviewed 88 students, alumni, faculty/staff advisors and non-Greeks (to find out why they hadn’t joined and what might make them want to join in the future). The consultant felt the chapters and councils needed a clear and consistent understanding of their role on campus and a better working relationship with UT. They also needed to integrate their core values into everything they do. If they do this, fraternities and sororities can make themselves more relevant on campus, he said. He made recommendations that became the underpinnings of the strategic plan. The students held a retreat where they discussed their values and came up with a mission and vision. Key administrators, including President Ronald L. Vaughn and Linda Devine, vice president of operations and planning, participated in the event. The students decided to focus on four key areas: academics, community service, leadership and relationships with those outside the community. They came up with task forces for each component and outlined one-, three- and five-year goals. For example, they want sororities and fraternities to
earn higher GPAs than the average for all women and men at UT, they want more Greeks to take on leadership roles across campus, and they want to establish an accreditation process. They’ve already seen results. Grades are higher. The entire community participated in Relay for Life, the major fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The Greek councils have even created a specific position to focus on philanthropy and community service, who is active in the PEACE Volunteer Center. The University has taken a hard line on hazing and alcohol violations. There have been few alcohol incidents, and hazing is not tolerated. The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement (OSLE) has administered bystander education, which has proven effective in generating more accountability. Students know they are responsible for one another, and they can’t sit back when they know something is wrong. “I believe the Strategic Plan helps
give our community a renewed sense of direction,” Hillery said. “We do many great things as individual chapters but this effort began to break down the barriers that existed between chapters. It helped members realize that we all have rituals, we all have standards and, as a community, we should exhibit our ritual by living it daily.” Though the percentage of Greeks is close to the national average (10 percent) OSLE would like to increase the Greek presence on campus, both by making Greeks more visible, and by adding organizations. A new sorority got its charter this fall: Kappa Alpha Theta. The University also hired a company to help with a large recruiting event this fall. “Being a part of a fraternity or sorority can be a huge part of your college life when it’s done the right way,” Carden said. “By prioritizing values, academics and community service you can create a lifelong commitment to an organization.” UT UTjournal Fall 2010 21

alumni report The scoop on your classmates and friends
After a long separation, the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon had a lot to catch up on.
Brothers and Sisters for Life This spring I had the opportunity to meet with two groups of alumni from the same decade. In each encounter I met people who felt a great connection to UT and were eager to share memories of their time here. A group of Delta Phi Epsilon alumnae celebrated their bonds over the course of a long weekend in May. Maria “Kuci” Lopez-Manz ’69 attended the reunion and had this to say: “What began as a fun weekend gettogether for three sisters visiting Tampa and their alma mater evolved into a mini-reunion of 22 sisters. Nineteen sisters, pledging from 1965 through 1972, and three charter founding advisors,
some of who had not seen each other in 40 plus years, joined the celebration. Getting together after so long made us appreciate our everlasting membership in DPhiE. It was as though we had just seen each other weeks earlier. As memories were shared, we found UT had provided us with a terrific stepping stone. Though now most are retired, the group included a mix of educators, social workers, entrepreneurs, an attorney, a sports coach, and an interior designer. DPhiE at UT was truly ahead of its time. A group of progressive women decided in 1962, which was prior to the enactment the Civil Rights Act, to
think out-of -the box and form a nonsectarian sorority. At that time sororities were strictly homogenous groups of white Christian women. Women of any religion, race, or creed were now able to join UT Greek life. Coupled with unbridled DPhiE determination, and overcoming many barriers, the Delta Upsilon chapter was chartered in 1965. DPhiE is proud to say it was the first sorority to accept Jews and become integrated with one of the very few black coeds on campus. The first two female business graduates were also Deephers — previously women had just two options for majors: education or social sciences. We now plan to locate the balance of our “lost” sisters and start a Delta Upsilon Chapter Alumni Association. Short-term plans are in the works for another reunion in March 2011. In the meantime you can locate many sisters on Facebook or through the UT alumni website. DPhiE is not presently active but a long-term goal is to recharter the sorority at UT. Anyone interested in joining us should e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Marcia Chaflin-Narod at email@example.com.” Brothers

(Continued from page 23) meet every other year at Sand Key to reconnect, share memories, and simply be around each other. Their fraternity house may be gone, but the bond they felt inside those walls on Hyde Park Avenue comes back whenever they gather, turning any location into their new home. The faces may have gotten a little older, and their hair slightly grayer, but the nicknames like Cag, Oobie Doobie, the Hound and Tha Boys have remained the same over the years. Just like the nicknames, the men have not skipped a beat, and it was as if they themselves had just graduated that morning. The stories were entertaining and free flowing, and they provided insight into life at UT in the ’60s. Joe Muklevicv ’65 shared that “The girls at Howell Hall wore white gloves and hats for social functions and that curfew on Saturday night was 12 midnight.” Not only was curfew at midnight, but I also learned there were regular room checks to help make sure there were no males in the “girls dorm,” a clear difference from current living arrangements. One memory that would probably ring true among today’s Sig Ep brothers came from “The Cag” who remembered “Waiting for your care package to come from home only to find out it arrived early, and the boys opened it for you.” I hope the members of our recent graduating class are able to stay connected to one another as they progress through life, the same way the Sig Eps have been able to over the last 40 years. And if we’re lucky, we might get a memory or two from the class of 2010 similar to those shared by Terry Cuccuriello ’68 and Tom Menegus ’67, who each said his most important memory was meeting his wonderful wife at UT.

Elena Cifuentes ’72 The Lost Symbols: A new teaching method demystifies drawing Imagine a calculus problem being placed in front of you. Now imagine you never learned addition or subtraction. That’s what it’s like when students are handed a blank sheet of paper and told to draw, says Elena Cifuentes ’72, who teaches drawing as an adjunct instructor at UT. So Elena created a method that teaches students to draw the same way we teach them math and writing, by starting with the fundamentals. She came up with a set of symbols and numbers to help people who say they can’t even draw a straight line. Every one of her students has shown improvement. “You can’t communicate with an instructor unless you have a symbol system and a method,” she says. “If you don’t have a method, then you’re guessing. I developed an alphabet just like in writing.” The inspiration for the method came during an origami class, when one of the students said a shape looked like a W. She said if you draw a W, you can draw the rest of the figure. Since then,
she’s worked with 6th graders up to adults. Her oldest student was 90. “This is something that could be taught to children when they learn to read and write and learn their numbers and symbols,” she says. “In writing first you learn the alphabet, then you learn to write sentences, then paragraphs, then essays.” Learning to draw this way could also help with reading skills, Cifuentes says, because it helps with visualization skills. It can allow children to see edges and break things down into their basic components. It also helps them learn what’s there and what’s not there. “Drawing is not a talent-based skill, and it’s not ‘magic,’ as some people might think,” says Dr. Catherine Chastain-Elliot, professor of art. “The heart of Elena’s method is linking drawing to writing. She shows people how to employ a symbol system they already know — numbers and letters — in order to ‘write’ a picture. The results are amazing!” UTjournal Fall 2010 25
Christopher Sullivan ’87 Spartan Makes a Career of Calling the Beautiful Game
“Every player has his moment,” according to a fútbol-inspired adage, loosely translated. Christopher Sullivan ’87, a commentator for the Fox Soccer Channel, has had a few of them. An All-American soccer midfielder at UT, Sullivan played on the U.S. National Team from 1987-1992 and was a member of the 1990 World Cup squad. He went on to a professional soccer career that spanned two continents and seven countries. And since 2003, Sullivan has had what many might consider a dream job as a member of Fox Soccer Channel’s broadcasting team for Major League Soccer, U.S. National Team and European league and international soccer matches. He’s a host of MLS Saturday on FSC and provided expert analysis during this summer’s World Cup. But you ask Sullivan what his “moment” was, and his answer is not a particular goal he scored, the first professional match he played in France, the time he played for the U.S. National Team against Brazil, or his broadcast of a 2009 match between Barcelona and the Los Angeles Galaxy in the Rose Bowl that drew 93,000 fans. 26 UTjournal Fall 2010
“I’ve had so many moments, so many great goals,” Sullivan said. “But it’s not about my playing. My best moments came having my children see what I do for a living. I feel very happy doing what I love.” Sullivan, who lives in Redwood City, CA, met his wife — “a gift from God” — when he was playing professionally in Hungary. They have two children. His daughter Monika is a pre-med major at Johns Hopkins University, and his son, Michael, is in high school. While Sullivan admits his first loves are coaching and training — both of which he does as time permits — there are some advantages to broadcasting, despite the frequent travel and long hours of preparation. “Coaching is 24/7. But in broadcasting, no matter who wins or loses, if you did a good job, then you can come home and get some sleep,” he said. Sullivan undoubtedly was a little short of sleep last summer as an FSC commentator for the World Cup. Every day for a month Sullivan energetically commented on past and upcoming matches on the FSC show Ticket to South Africa. He was satisfied with the high level of play of Latin American teams, which typically play with a lot of “flair and sugar.” “The successful teams placed an emphasis on technique, fluidity and rhythm, and were playing the game the way it should be played…the way you want your children to watch,” Sullivan said. The play of the eventual winner, Spain, certainly attested to that. One of Sullivan’s strengths as a soccer broadcaster — a byproduct of his international playing experience — is that he is fluent in Spanish, French and Hungarian. In his pre-production research, Sullivan frequently calls coaches, reporters and fans in countries around the world to get the inside scoop on players and strategies. “Because you have the language, they speak more freely,” Sullivan said. “It’s a huge advantage. If I could do it all again, I would have majored in languages.”

saying that our world could be better — no, that it WILL be better. Some of today’s college graduates face the double penalty of student loans and no job. But the 91 percent of UT students who receive financial aid also receive a vote of confidence from the alumni and friends who made those scholarships possible through their contributions. Now is not the time to be pessimistic and cut back on giving. Let’s continue to send a message to the Class of 2011 that they have a whole world of optimism to look forward to. A LeGACy oF LeArninG
leaving a legacy
Optimistic Giving in Pessimistic Times Hundreds of people donated to UT last year, and they could have had just as many reasons compelling them to do so. But all the donors had one thing in common: optimism. Giving USA recently reported that last year’s charitable donations were down 3.9 percent over the previous year. While all the numbers are not in yet, it appears that UT donors have maintained their giving at previousyear levels. Does this make us an optimistic bunch? You bet. All philanthropists believe in hope despite the circumstances. Even if they send money to a charity that fights huge, intractable problems like hunger, poverty or disease, they still believe that their money is doing at least some good, right? Otherwise, why bother? This year’s commencement speaker, 34 UTjournal FAll 2010
Rashid Skaf ’92, implored the Class of 2010 to “live fearlessly.” Good advice, since optimism would seem to be in short supply among graduates as they leave campus to face the worst job market in generations. But optimistic they are — even though some of their family members and friends have lost jobs while they were in college. Why is the Class of 2010, like our UT donors, still optimistic? Perhaps it is because they follow in the footsteps of others who have proudly received their diplomas. No one would disagree that these are tough times. But earlier UT graduates have gone off to war, seen political unrest, lost money and jobs, and faced many of life’s catastrophes. Despite these challenges, or maybe because of them, giving is a way of
This June, the Tampa community lost a lifelong supporter of education, Braulio Alonso ’39. He saw Tampa grow from a handful of schools to what is now the 11th largest school district in the United States. Throughout his career as a teacher, principal and president of the Hillsborough, Florida and National Education Associations, Alonso was best known for his unwavering passion for improving education. You could say that Alonso and The University of Tampa grew up together. In 1935, the young Hillsborough High School valedictorian showed up for classes at the “new” university. It was only two years earlier that UT’s founder, Frederic Spaulding, had made the same journey from Hillsborough High to the old Tampa Bay Hotel to open the doors for UT’s first day of classes. Incredibly, it was the middle of the Great Depression when Alonso and UT both began their missions to serve students. Both followed the same path from obscurity to national prominence and both have left an indelible mark on the community. Need more information?

Often I am asked how the challenging national and global economy has impacted The University of Tampa. Fortunately, I have good news to relay. Admissions numbers are up, we’re still hiring faculty and staff, we’re adding new programs and financial support remains solid. The bottom line is, we continue to change lives and build the next generation of leaders. But, it’s not as easy as it might sound. Due to the weak economy, continuing family financial pressures and increased competition, we are forced to be especially creative, thoughtful, strategic and nimble. Just like any business, we have to respond to market changes, and fortunately, we have administration, faculty and staff, as well as supporters, who are helpful and committed to our goals. I firmly believe the best days for UT are still ahead, and I am emboldened by the progress we’ve made in past days, months and years. I have selected a few highlights — in all areas of campus — that illustrate the success we had last year and ensure our relevance in future years. UTjournal Fall 2010 37
president’s annual report
Jenine Rossington ’11 was chosen for a prestigious State Department program this summer.
The strength of an institution lies in its people, especially in its faculty. In past years the faculty ranks have grown steadily, and this year was no exception as we recruited 34 full-time faculty members. This large transfusion of talent helps lead UT into the future and supports our emphasis on quality teaching/learning and educational excellence. It also allows us to build new programs, which this year included minors in leadership and speech and five new majors in Continuing Studies. UT now offers 125 program areas of study. Our academic success is striking, as the following examples in each of our colleges bear: n In the College of Business, approximately 600 students participated in more than 120 consulting assignments with area organizations through the Naimoli Institute. n Faculty in the College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education reported 40 articles, 42 conference papers, seven chapters and six books. n One of the College of Arts and Letter’s most popular majors, film and media arts, saw students screen prize-
winning films at the Young Florida Filmmakers and Sunscreen Film Festival. n In the College of Natural and Health Sciences 100 percent of our graduating nursing students passed their licensing board exam on the first try. Only one other Florida institution achieved that. The American Chemical Society granted UT specialized accreditation, upping our institution-wide licensing and accreditations to eight. These attest to our educational quality and enhance our soaring reputation. UT’s international focus has been particularly strong this past year. We contracted to open an ELS Language Center to support international student language skills and strengthen worldwide recruitment of students. We also have launched a unique new freshmen year abroad program with Roehampton University in London that is targeted at our top incoming freshmen. Finally, we made progress in planning new academic facilities. Con-
struction is now complete on the Cass Science Annex, which houses chemistry and biology; new anatomy and physiology labs; and faculty offices and classrooms. Enrollment
Traditional undergraduate admissions faced another very competitive year due to the economy, intensified competition and changing demographics. Despite that, we: n Set an enrollment record in 20092010 with 6,300 students. n Achieved this year’s goal of approximately 6,500 total students. We are on track toward our 2015 enrollment target of 7,000 students, while maintaining an average class size of 21. n Increased our admissions selectivity. We also focused on accessibility. UT’s financial aid office faced a record number of appeals from students for additional funds, and we have responded well. New scholarships established this year have been particularly helpful. Lastly, UT is experiencing one of the best years in our history for recruitment of international students who now come from 100 countries. Student Affairs
The Cass Science Annex is a candidate for LEED certification.
Last year the Student Government Association (SGA) initiated two new services that proved especially successful. The first, Connect by Hertz, provides rental cars on campus for students at low, hourly rates. I hope students will utilize this program as an alternative to bringing cars to campus, thus alleviating parking issues and adding to campus sustainability. Secondly, SGA installed a Blockbuster Express DVD rental kiosk. The kiosk, located in the Vaughn Center, had the most DVD rentals recently in Blockbuster’s “University” category.
“ The bottom line is, we continue to change lives and build the next generation of leaders.”— President Ronald L. Vaughn 38 UTjournal Fall 2010
Hundreds of students participated in Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.
The PEACE Volunteer Center expanded its alternative break program, offering students the opportunity to volunteer at such locations as Horses and the Handicapped in Boca Raton and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Students also traveled to an impoverished region in Peru to work with orphans and other children from poor families. UT was again named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. As you’ll read elsewhere in this issue, the Greek organization community developed and implemented a strategic plan with one-, three-, and five-year goals to focus on academics, accountability, alumni/advisors, campus/community involvement and member education as strategic priorities. Construction of a new health and wellness center is under way and will be completed later this fall. Two-thirds of UT students participated in career services programs this past year, and our Office of Career Services continues to provide opportunities despite the challenging economy: n Several hundred employers came for on-campus interviews, information sessions, workshop presentations and career fairs. n More than 1,000 employers directly accessed our HIRE-UT website
to look at students’ resumes and for other services. n UT students had access to 295,750 full- and part-time jobs and internships throughout the U.S. and beyond in the Experience network of our HIRE-UT site. n UT graduates in this difficult global economy still reported success in finding jobs. Ninety-six percent of the undergraduate Class of 2009 reported success in achieving their post-graduate goals. Lastly, for the first time in UT’s history the sitting president and vice president of the United States made an official visit to campus. Barack Obama and Joe Biden held a town hall meeting in the Martinez Sports Center and approximately 3,000 people, including many UT students, attended. This visit added to the intellectual dialogue on campus, provided students a oncein-a-lifetime experience and gave UT international exposure. Athletics
UT athletics had a banner year with seven of our 14 teams winning conference championships and eight competing in NCAA post-season play. n Twenty-four students were recognized as Athletic All-Americans.
Mike Blanke ’11 runs in a grand slam, which gave UT the lead in the South Regional championship.
n Five of our athletics staff members were recognized as Coaches of the Year. n Our athletes had a cumulative GPA of 3.10 and our nearly 500 student-athletes maintained a 96 percent average graduation rate. Seventy-six of those students were named to the Sunshine State Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll for the Spring 2010 semester, and 66 were named for the Fall 2009 semester. n Student athletes also set records for community service with more than 5,000 hours and $15,000 in donations raised.
Over the past 15 years, UT’s operating budget has grown from $28 million to $160 million. UT once again ended the fiscal year in the black — our 15th successive year. Plus, we were able to balance the budget while continuing transformations to the educational experience and campus. UT’s Office of Information Technology expanded the wireless computer network (with more than 200 campus sites as well as full wireless buildings), continued to upgrade our four dozen computer labs, strengthened network, identity and virus security, collaborated on specialized instructional software, and enhanced disaster recovery and business continuity plans. The University continued to be very active with energy and water conservation and general sustainability efforts: n We replaced light fixtures with more efficient options (e.g., LED and induction lighting systems). n We continue to expand campus recycling programs. n We completed a central air renovation of Smiley Hall to replace numerous window air conditioner units. n We hosted Earth Charter’s annual Sustainability Awards Program. n Two new buildings under construction meet the requirements for UTjournal Fall 2010 39
president’s annual report
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sustainability certification. Campus safety and security efforts continue to be a high priority with a variety of efforts to strengthen systems and enhance communications. UT was one of only 33 colleges and universities in the country to be certified as StormReady by the National Weather Service. Due to our enrollment growth, we planned, designed, determined funding, launched and managed several building
construction projects totaling more than 40,000 square feet. Of course, the biggest project under way continues to be the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. The 3,184-pipe Dobson organ is now being installed and tuned. Future Days
Constant improvement is one of the keys to UT’s success, and anyone visiting campus on a typical day would see that improvement in action. This
includes faculty fine-tuning curricula, teaching and embarking on new research projects. It includes staff overseeing construction projects, recruiting new students, advising current students, managing facilities and increasing the University’s reputation. Most of all, it includes students improving themselves — academically and personally — and shaping their successful futures. UT has done remarkable things in the past, and will continue to do remarkable things into the future. UT
experiential education Whether through participating in internships, conducting research, serving in the community, studying abroad or leading campus organizations, students who learn by doing learn more effectively. Experiential learning allows students to act on what they have learned, to use the theories and skills gained in the classroom to solve real-world problems. It also gives students an edge in the competition for jobs and graduate school. UT has a long history of valuing experiential education, and we have deliberately created an environment where education through application thrives. For example: n Students complete almost 500 internships annually. There were 60 internships coordinated by the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice this year alone, at such locations as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI.

n Nearly 300 students participate in UT travel courses or study abroad each year. n Approximately 75 students participate in research-oriented projects for honors credit. n Dozens of students present their research at regional and national conferences. n In an accounting class that focuses on federal taxation, students assist elderly and individuals with moderate income with their tax returns. n The cross-disciplinary minor in leadership studies, which includes theory courses, leadership-focused classes and 90-plus hours of experiential activities and events, began this fall. n Campus-wide, students, faculty and staff combined to provide more than 100,000 service hours with more than 200 organizations. Approximately 600 students participated in each of our biannual days of service. n Nearly 1,000 students are employed on campus each year. The more than 100 students employed by the Office of Residence Life help to provide more than 6,000 social and educational programs in the residence halls each year. Each issue of the UT Journal abounds with examples of experiential education. The story about seahorse research on page 10 describes a faculty member including students in her research. The entrepreneurship program, on page 16, provides real-world experience based on practical, classroom learning. The story on page 19 about Greek life illustrates the progress we’ve made ensuring that system builds leaders. UT has been recognized as a leader in experiential education by the National Society for Experiential Education, and we believe it is just one more aspect of the UT experience that is unparalleled in higher education.

Whatâ€™s in store The University used to have a school store in the Plant Hall Music Room, where students sold pennants, beanies and other school gear. The fashions of the day are clearly on display here, and by the looks of it, this photo was taken in the 1940s. Anyone who recognizes a classmate in the photo, or has more information on the school store, can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
